Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

Why'd they show it again? Cuz Venus losing is such big new that they'd want to milk the ratings?

Whatever...I really wanted to see that Hewitt/Nadal match too.

Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

You see, ESPN is stoopid. Because when Nadal gets very good - and he will - your casual tennis viewer in American is going to say "who the fuck is this guy, and why haven't I heard of him before", as he starts progressing into week two of slams - and he will, eventually.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

On the ESPN website, it doesn't say "tennis," it says "Lleyton Hewitt vs. Rafael Nadal"

That BETTER be what they show. I wrote like 10 emails last night. Maybe others did as well and it woke them up.

Perhaps they will be saved from God's wraith for now

Becca, agreed. I don't see how he can't become a top playing, barring major injury.

Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

Sucks.

But there would realistically be some time left in the show even after re-playing Venus/Lisa, no? Maybe they'd at least show the last set or something. Unless they decide to show Agassi again from yesterday.

Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

well I suppose we'll find out in less than a half hour but hopefully they'll show Hewitt/Nadal. I would've liked to have seen the Canas/Henman epic too but I guess Henman is only big news at the All England Club

Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

Yeah, I was puzzled when the William and Raymond match came on again.

We'll see what they do...

Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

This is so unbelievable.

If people didn't stay up to watch it the first time then the hell with them

They promised Lleyton vs. Rafael.

Re: ESPN lies YET AGAIN

It's pretty pathetic. I just saw the beginning of the broadcast and Chris Fowler gave the results to the Venus/Lisa match right before they were about to reair it. What's the point of giving away results to a tape-delayed match and then repeating it on the air?! That should draw in those ratings.
